Hobbies are relaxing and help us cope with the everyday stresses of life. Celebrities lead busier lives than most of us so it should come as no surprise that many of them have hobbies too. That said, you might be surprised at what some of their interests include, although really they are no stranger than yours or mine.

According to Listverse, George Clooney makes shoes in his spare time. He revealed that this is his favourite pastime on Reddit in 2014, stating that he is a better cobbler than Daniel Day-Lewis who also has the same passion.
Kate Moss Plays Bingo
Kate Moss developed her love of bingo as a young girl and according to articles in the Telegraph and the Mirror, she still loves to play although these days she tends to play online. She joins the many thousands of others who play on sites such as Buzz Bingo largely because of the variety of games.

Bill Murray Loves Gatecrashing
Bill Murray just loves to turn up where he is least expected. As well as making us all laugh on TV and the big screen, he loves to put joy into people’s day-to-day lives. There are many stories of him serving in bars, giving out drinks for free and even making surprise appearances at events. He has joined bachelor parties, engagement parties and even once crashed a private house party where he washed the dishes for the host. In fact, there are so many of these antics that a website, Bill Murray Stories, has been started to make them more public.
Nicolas Cage And Comic Books
Nicolas Cage has an obsession with comic books and has an extremely large collection. Even his surname “Cage” comes from the Marvel character, Luke Cage, as he did not want to be accused of using his true family name to further his career. He is actually the nephew of director Francis Ford Coppola, Coppola being his real surname. According to GEMR, his collection was built up, sold and then rebuilt. Although he has sold some of them again, he decided to retain most this time around.
It seems he collects many other things too; he has shrunken pygmy heads, a pet octopus and a dinosaur skull. He also has several exotic pets. On top of that, among his collection of motor vehicles, there are nine Rolls Royce cars and 30 motorbikes. Property wise, he owns an island, a castle and a mansion that is said to be haunted.
Tom Hanks Collects Typewriters
Tom Hanks has a fixation with old manual typewriters and collects them as a hobby. He is very proud of his collection and has developed an iPhone app known as Hanx Writer, so everyone can have a go.
Some of these pastimes might seem a bit strange, but really they are not so out of the ordinary when you consider the range of hobbies now on offer.
